of you keeping track at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut behind him, he granted an interview with an israeli newspaper ahead of his visit. the newspaper is part owned by billionaire donor sheldon adelson, so there's that. what is really important about the interview is that mitt romney, what mitt ram gnaw had to say about foreign policy. when asked about his response
. he has done so much good work in the world. >> former president george w. bush. >> i want to stay connected to the veteran community. i won't be a public person. this is a rare interview for me. >> the wounded warriors and keeping america great. this is piers morgan tonight. . >> two big introduce. the first is with ted turner, but also an outspoken man and what he thinks of television and america and his life. a rare interview where george w. bush talks about keeping america great and the cause closest to his heart. the country's veterans. >> after 9/11, millions volunteered. they said we want to serve our country. i don't view it as anything and the cause of securing our country and the cause of liberty. >> the interview with george w. bush coming later and first on this occasion, literally no introduction. he is the man who created cnn. the reason i and others are here. ted turner. welcome back. how does it feel? >> good. >> does it? >> yeah. >> are you proud of cnn? >> absolutely. >> do you watch it? >> you bet. >> do you like what you see? >> most of it. >> you always said ab
that would be different from what george w. bush tried to push through. >> well, let me describe, actually, there are five things that i believe are necessary to get this economy going. one, take advantage of our energy resources, particularly natural gas, but also coal, oil, nuclear, renewables. that's number one. number two, trade. i want to dramatically increase trade, and particularly with latin america. number three, take action to get america on track to have a balanced budget. now, those three things, by the way are things which we have not been doing over the last few years which i think are essential to getting this economy going again. number four, we've got to show better training and education opportunities for our current workers and for coming workers. and then finally, what i call restoring economic freedom. that means keep our taxes as low as possible, have regulations modern and up to date, get health care costs down. these things will restore economic freedom. >> so, how is it that different from what george w. bush tried to push through? it is not. it is not different fr
forward including support for programs that were set up by president george w. bush. they have undermined the environmental protection agency, established by richard nixon, and its authority to hold polluters to account and they have threatened iconic places from the great lakes to the gulf of mexico, the appalachian mountains to the chesapeake bay turning away from the national wildlife preservation legacy this country has pursued for more than a century sins the presidency of theodore roosevelt. that is why we call this a political assault on the american environment. it is reckless, it is radical, it is relentless, it is wrong and it is time we stood up to turn this around. [applause] this assault is not about jobs as its proponents claim. it is about putting polluter profits first and putting the rest of us at risk. from the air we breathed the water we drink from the mountains to the sea. government regulations of all kinds account for far less than 1% of all major layoffs in the economy. we have economic data from the bureau of labor statistics that proves that. decades of data make
. ronald reagan. let's go -- i mean every single president, george h.w. bush. >> it's a brutal job. they all leave broken. >> i mean look at obama. he's not broken but his hair is graying. they visibly age. >> bill clinton is not broken. >> oh, wait, i forget. bill clinton is not broken. you know why bill clinton is not broken because he refused to leave. >> he won't leave. >> bill clinton still in the hangar, four months later. >> they're broken when they leave but rehabilitate themselves. even nixon, you couldn't leave more broken than nixon but he becomes this age of saddle river, having journalists out to dinner, rewriting history books. even nixon can come back. there is life after the presidency if you handle yourself. >> history is like one of the reasons this is all so much fun and i think so important ultimately, is remember the way the founders described i think washington described the senate as the saucer in which -- >> the tea cooled. >> the tea cooled. >> that's what history. it takes our friend michael, says a rule, you can't write about a president in full until 25
-one u. s. presidents combined from george washington to george w. bush, he has racked up more debt in 2-1/2 years as president barack obama racked up more deficits than george w. bush in all eight years combined and george w. bush was fighting two wars and barack obama had more deficits and two years than george bush did in eight years. he socialized health care which the congressional budget office says is going to sway 800,000 jobs but more importantly for young people for us it is going to raise our premiums because in obamacare it is tough to weigh a provision that says insurance companies can no longer very price according to one's age or health status. insurance companies look at us and see again healthy individual and say you got to pay the same rate as your parents and grandparents. a huge redistribution of wealth from young to old and the left celebrates it. youth unemployment at historic highs. you have almost double the national average with those 18 and older and you look at the key to unemployment. many of you are in this category if not all of you and in america right now
organized by the george w. bush presidential center led by president bush himself. >> it's a 100 kilometer mountain bike ride to thank their families and the groups that helped them recovery from serious injury. >> each of the warriors suffered the most consequence of war. it's a chance to prove to their former commander in chief and themselves what they can do. >> stories of courage, sacrifice and commitment. these are volunteers who wanted to serve the country and suffered serious injury. >> while serving in iraq, chris was caught in a crossfire. >> i walked into a prison break that apparently had killed their guards. their iraqi guards and taken their ak-47s and apparently grabbed a few other ak-47s and trying to escape. they were coming right around the corner. about 16 of them turned the corner and i shot and they shot. the process. >> one bullet in his right leg, leaving him paralyzed. his wife will never forget his phone call home. >> he was very, very scared. he was starting to get a little bit -- he was having a hard time catching his breath. the pain was kicking in. it was hard.
the presidential medal of freedom by president george w. bush. >>> the heat wave simmers on with many households still stuck without power. this is the fourth straight day with heating weather and many have no air conditions, fans ice or other release. one in four households in washington, d.c. is still without power. they're struggling to clean up after the weekend storms that brought down trees an powerlines. >>> and we have an update now that's good news for fire crews bah ling the largest -- battling the largest firefighters. they'll resume following a deadly crash in south dakota on sunday entire fleet of c130 attack tankers was grounded. the fire is now 70% contained. >>> well, fog trying to come through and wiped out. it retreated really fast. we're happy to say the coast is clear in san jose which was overcast yesterday morning started off a little this morning. it was 63 yesterday for a low there. 56 this morning big difference northerly breeze decided to kick in. you know this time of year, that means good-bye to the fog and warmer temperatures. we had westerly breeze for a while, now
system is more point than the structures that a republican congress was happy to give george w. bush authority. that was based on the u.n. resolution. i think if we're going to talk about checking and balancing then, i'm not sure how one does it, but to rely on congress vigorously to assert its own pe interrogato per interrogatoritives against the president of their own power doesn't work. it hasn't been accurate since 1800. >> i was going to say i don't think even people in congress want to fix the war powers resolution problem. it's a convenient symbol that congress was doing something about war power as a way to avoid doing the things that congress could do. you could cut off funds or not pay for any of the conflicts. libya might have been so small you might be able to wage the whole thing. the other thing is about the political party thing. kosovo is interesting because president clinton went to war, went beyond the 60-day clock. congress was controlled by the other party. one of the ten things in a contractor was repeal the war powers resolution. you had a case where president
presidents not doing this. but george w. bush did it, john mccain did it and presidential candidates did it. i think republicans need to end this tradition of appearing before the naacp to try and reach black voters. the type of black voters who may be open to voting republican are not at naacp conventions. you can go into communities and visit churches and visit small businesses. you can visit charter schools and so forth. you can advertise on black radio and black television programming. that's how you can reach people. there is no need to go before groups like this and try and seek black votes that way. i don't think it has been a very good strategy. >> what about getting credit? does he get credit foregoing into the liberal group like this saying, look, here is my argument on health care. here is my argument on education. get credit for bravery for reaching out and saying these are my convictions. you need to hear these. >> i just think his time and effort would be better spent on more persuadable people than who he is addressing there. he said all of the right things. >> amazing. >> th
but did not mention former president george w. bush. >>> to penn state where officials, quote, concealed critical facts instead of protecting young boys. that is the scathing conclusion of an eight-month inquiry into the school's handing of the jerry sandusky sex abuse scandal. nbc's chris pollone has details. >> reporter: former fbi director louis freeh said it was fear of bad publicity which kept penn state leaders, including coach joe paterno, from revealing details to law enforcement and the public about jerry sandusky's contact with young boys. >> the most powerful men at penn state failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who sandusky victimized. >> reporter: freeh's team poured over more than 3 million documents, some that showed that paterno, contrary to his grand jury testimony, did know about a 1998 police investigation into sandusky's contact with a young boy in the penn state locker room shower. freeh blasted former president graham spanier, athletic director tim curley, vice president gary schultz, and paterno for their inactions. >> nobody even spoke to
that about george w. bush. the whole press would have gone nuts. every once in a while you look at mitt romney and go how did the that guy wind up winning this race? and then you are reminded oh right, he won, because he was running against them. all right. when we come back we're going to do a fun segment. what would we do to mitt romney if we were like fox news? >> if you are running for president, you really can't speak honestly to the american people. in your jeep grand cherokee. and when you do, you'll be grateful for the adaptive cruise control that automatically adjusts your speed when approaching slower traffic. and for the blind spot monitoring that helps remind you that the highway might not be as desolate... ...as you thought. ♪ ♪ double miles you can "actually" use. but with those single mile travel cards...

organization and elaine chow the former labor secretary under president george w. bush. okay, david. i'm going to let you take a swing at this right off the bat. because when i saw these numbers come down, i thought to myself, wait a second. it wasn't too long ago when i believe it was senator obama complaining that george w. bush thought 200 or 300,000 jobs added was a good number. this is 80,000 jobs. this cannot be spun as good news for americans. >> it's not good news for america. let's recall though that obama made that complaint before we suffered the biggest financial crisis in american history, you know, after the wall street crash of 1929. we lost 9 million jobs as a result of that crisis when obama took office, we were hemorrhaging 700,000 jobs a month. unemployment hit 10%. so in many ways we have come a long way. we haven't lost any jobs in the last two years. we are making progress. clearly not enough progress. in retrospect that stimulus was not nearly big enough in 2009. that american jobs act that the president tried to pass last september should have been enacted by congress.
forward as a nation and not go back to the policies of george w. bush which brought about the whole economic crisis. >> let me ask about the tax cuts expiring. my position in the senate democrats is the gop pledge, obviously not to vote to raise taxes, can be gotten around by letting the tax cuts expire on january 1st and then vote on a tax cut for those who make less than 2$250,000 a year. let me play for you what minority leader mitch mcconnell said. >> democrats in congress are now saying that they would rather see taxes go up on every american at the end of the year than let about 1 million businesses keep what they earn now. >> is he right and where do you see showdown going? >> no, he is not right. we will have a vote next week. it will give 100% of the people a tax break on the first $250,000 of income. beyond that, if you are over that, your income over that is taxed at the bill clinton rates. those rates were fair and just. those rates led us to 23 million jobs created and a surplus instead of deficits. mitch mcconnell should join hands with us. let's get it done. that mean
politics, george w. bush giving his colorful reflection on his time in office. quote, i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not going back. >> eight years was awesome. i was famous and powerful, but i have no desire for fame and power anymore. i don't want to undermine our president or whoever is president. and a former president can do that. i think it's bad for the presidency itself. >> the former president also said, quote, i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well, but he can do well would you tell me. annou medicare and social security, you've earned the right to know. ♪ ...so what does it mean for you and your family?

, well i did it for ford in '76, but then again for george w. bush in 2000. i had a couple calls from prominent politicians who would say it would help me in my race back home if i was on the list. you are on the list. then somebody could leak the fact that they were on the list. but that was the big list. it was easy to get on the big list. the tough part is the small list. the one that is really under active consideration. and the test to get on the small list has to be is this person capable of being president of the united states. that's usually a very, very short list. >> what about the other considerations? can you bring a state? can you -- reach out to a specific demographic, woman, hispanic? >> those are important issues. but they should never be allowed to override the first proposition. and i think that, that was one of the problems mccain had. i like governor palin. i have met her the i know her. she is an attractive candidate. but based on her background she had only been governor for two years. i don't think she passed that test. >> being ready? >> being ready to take ove
. after george w. bush left office, the club had its protocols and traditions. he was off the grid and disappeared. he said the current president deserves my sound. it is a very classic decision. obviously his vice president did not take that approach. [laughter] when he finally broke the cover three weeks ago and made some very gently constructive criticism of obama's tax on energy policy, he said but, i don't believe our president, our country should criticize our president. the public role of the president supporting the current one continues. this is a great picture. >> this is an amazing moment. again, we argue about whether eisenhower does or not. johnson is the majority leader. still, a democrat and a republican. the night of the kennedy assassination, johnson is on the phone to eisenhower. he said i've needed you for longtime enemies you more than ever. the next day, eisenhower drives to the white house to see president johnson. he sees kennedy's body lying in state. and he goes to see johnson. he writes out in a legal pad and here's what you need to do. you need to call a
for re-election. and there was also then-governor george w. bush, his hands touching the wall. other famous faces elizabeth taylor, richard burton in 1975. and in 2000, ailing pope john paul ii made an historic trip, attempting to build a stronger relationship with catholics and jews, we wish to commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood to the people. two more prayers added with quiet wishes from america. mr. and mrs. romney, writing the prayers together, adding to so many powerful moments at the western wall. david muir, abc news, jerusalem. >> and, again this is just about halfway through his international tour. he said, he said yesterday, that preventing iran from obtaining nuclear capabilities that is going to be his highest national security priority. >> right. and david, part of the interview, pressed him, said your strategy in terms of iran, israel doesn't seem too different from how the obama administration handed it. we will see if there is a strict difference here. some have been critical saying, israel, american tensions have never been worse than right now. so he is trying
making under $250,000 a year. the president didn't specifically mention president george w. bush or mitt romney by name specifically. he did implicitly link the policies of the two men. >> we have tried it their way. it didn't work. congress passed trillions of dollars in tax cuts that benefitted the wealthiest americans more than anybody else. what happened? the wealthy got wealthier. most americans struggled. >> the president said today he would call for congress to take action on this. nobody in washington expects the legislative grid lock here to break any time before the election. that means this issue and so many others in the fiscal cliff scenario will have to be dealt with sometime after the election between november and the beginning of next year. so there are six to eight weeks where washington has to deal with some stuff. for now this is all politics. >> all right. just a quickie. >> yeah. >> what you're saying is the so-called middle class tax cuts will be extended but the upper end tax cuts for the rich, et cetera, et cetera, will be ended permanently. is that the idea? ex-t
rights, were not a fan of george w. bush. there was the war, two wars, several other issues, to say the least, but you're watching, you write in your book you're watching the state of the union address, you lived in the states on and off, you've had a home in atlanta, you're watching the 2003 state of the union address. tell me about your reactions to watching george w. bush announcing the billions of dollars that he was going to ask for to be appropriated for global aids. >> i remember jumping up and punching the air but also, at the same time, feeling that i swallowed a boiled egg. i couldn't believe it. it was just a wonderful, again, a pivotal turning point in the treatment of aids people throughout the world. and when i got my kennedy center honor and spent some time with him and rumsfeld and condoleezza rice and colin powell backstage at the interval of the concert, we had a wonderful ten minutes of conversation. he was very informed about aids. i wasn't on the same political, you know, page as him. i didn't agree with a lot of his policies. but he impressed me greatly. >> in
was up here in the primary with the candidates including george w. bush have been in fall in six presidential campaigns. now seven. hopefully i will continue in new hampshire. it is such a critical state. it is great to see steve's results as an entrepreneur. i knew he was a great friend said john mccain. he was doing a little bit of everything on the campaign trail. we used to talk about what he was up to back home. he is engaging in a presidential campaign. if you are an entrepreneur and a risk taker, you need a business environment. part of that will be dictated by washington. right now all the unpredictability in our economy, it is not difficult to get people to take a risk and to do what steve has done and what my family has done an ohio. my father was a small business guy who took a risk. he left his job in sales and started his own business. i asked him whether he would do it again. he said, i do not know. there's so much uncertainty out there. you have a government that does not seem to get it. they're making it more difficult and not easier to get jobs. steve has taken r
out to you, george w. bush released ten years, george h.w. bush released 14 years and bob dole released 30 years. mitt romney has only released one. how is that the standard? >> well good morning to you as well norah. as to the two years, of course he released one year going back and also the estimates that he has for this year. that's two preliminarily on the second year. >> we don't know how much he paid in taxes on 2011. >> not yet. but he said he would release those going forward. as to the standard that you mentioned, the practice has varied. you cited some examples of some. but there's others who have only gone back a few years. the larger point is this. there is no claim or no credible indication that mitt romney's done anything wrong. he's within the range of past practice and custom. but number two, why is the media focused on this issue, 10 15-year-old tax returns or college transcripts, when we should be focused on the large issues and the main issues. >> is governor rick perry a member of media? >> i'm sorry. >> governor rick perry is not a mem

added in my opening statement comments made by president george w. bush after 9/11 which i thought were solid statements of constitutional principle. particularly when it came to those of the muslim faith, that our war is not against this islamic religion, but against those who would corrupt it, distort it, and misuse it in the name of terrorism. and i thank you for your test knownmy. >> thank you, sir. >> congresswoman judy chu represents the 32nd district of california. since 2009. she was the first chinese-american woman ever elected to congress. she chairs the congressional asian-pacific american caucus. formally she served in the california state assembly. we're honored that you're here today. please proceed. >> thank you, senator. as chair of the congressional asian pacific american caucus, i'm grateful for the opportunity to speak here today about ending racial profiling in america. asian-americans and pacific islanders like other minority communities have felt the significant effect of racial profiling throughout american history. from the chinese exclusion act, to the japanese-
